A collaboration between Trixie and Art’S’Cool
The Thing is a creative force, present within each and single person, but especially within children. It thrives within kids as they are not yet held down as much by preconceptions on how things should and shouldn’t be, like adults are.
“The Thing” is a collaborative exploration between the artists of Trixie and the children of Art-S-Cool – Part event, part exhibition, part neighbourhood gathering, it hopes to bring together the worlds of neighbourhood communities with contemporary art. For two days artists and children will work together to materialise their idea of what this ambiguous force in all of us is. The Thing will see children of Schilderswijk take over the gallery space of Trixie and create together in a free and energetic way, creating a space where the outcome doesn’t matter as much as the process of making.
While the children and teachers will form the main creative force of the event, it is expected that others, being casual visitors, parents, artists, neighbourhood crowds, are invited to join and contribute. Through this “The Thing” will act as a mixing bowl of different crowds, scenes, and neighbourhoods.
Trixie introduces herself as a brand new artist-run space located in the Stationsbuurt, neighboring the red light district of The Hague. Our building consists of an open and dynamic exhibition space with huge windows and shiny mirrors, including fifteen studios, currently hosting seventeen young artists/designers who work towards establishing a firm base for their artistic career. Trixie has an eye for recent graduates and invites diverse groups of artists to experiment with alternative presentation strategies and expand their practice.
